    My male PBP is foaming from the mouth and nose. Seems a bit weak and is not interested in grain. my sow is being unusually aggresive towards him and chasing him around the pen and not allowing him to lie down in the house???? Have a call into the vet and my pig buddy but what to do in the mean time??? Nothing different given to them and he was fine this morning?? They are on pasture, maybe he ate a bad plant??

    Thanks! I wondered if he swallowed something......no chickens in with them though..lol!
    Is there anything i could give him, like some mineral oil or something to speed it along? He's not foaming this morning, still no calls from anyone , but he was off his feed a bit. Wanted to eat, but lost interest after a few bites.
